How to rewrite part of a URL - remove "prestashop" in URL

Recommended Posts

Can somebody please coach me how to rewrite part of a URL?


Let's say customers now access my store at www.mystore.com. The URL that displays on their browsers is rewritten to "www.mystore.com/prestashop". All subsequent pretty URLs take the same form "www.mystore.com/prestashop/image.jpg". I guess this could be because my document root is "opt/bitnami/apps/prestashop".


So I would like to know how I can rewrite to "www.mystore.com/store" instead, but without having to rename the directory in the file system.


I understand I may need to edit a .htaccess file and make certain configuration in the back office. Anyone can advise please?



I'm running Prestashop version on

  • Apache HTTPD 2.2.22
  • PHP 5.3.14
  • MySQL 5.5.21
  • Ubuntu Linux 12.04
